The Goonies 2 is a game released for the Nintendo Entertainment System. It is a sequel to both the movie and videogame versions of The Goonies, the latter of which was only released in the arcades and on the Nintendo Famicom.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The game's story centers on Mikey. His friends, the Goonies, have been kidnapped by the Fratellis—an Italian family of small-time crooks and counterfeiters. Mikey must rescue all six of his friends and, inexplicably, free a captured mermaid named Annie who didn't appear in the film.

The game alternates between two modes of play. The main mode of play is a side-scrolling platform-jumping game, where Mikey must knock out enemies by using his yo-yo and any other weapons he comes across. When he enters certain rooms, the mode of play switches to first-person mode, where the player must move through rooms in order to look for items and people he needs to talk to or rescue.
